Chris Tse, Founding Director of the Cardstack Project, gives an update on the strategy for the Cardstack product. He explains how the infrastructure and the basic building blocks add up to something that can actually be experienced by the different participants of the ecosystem—the users, the developers, the service providers, and the businesses.

While the users, developers, service providers, and businesses all have their own approach to and use for Cardstack, they are all connected through their participation in the ecosystem. What makes these unique yet interconnected experiences possible—that’s the Cardstack product.

The composable UI system called the “Card SDK” enables developers to create, deploy, and sell cards in the front-end. Meanwhile, the decentralized application server called the “Cardstack Hub” powers the whole experience in the back-end. Finally, the multi-currency payment and billing network called the “CARD Protocol” sits in the middle, to ensure a fair, decentralized network—and ultimately create a thriving, sustainable marketplace.
